Well organized, great staff, perfect time of year before it got too busy. I'd choose March 1st if I was to go again. Cold nights in the Tea houses were unexpected. Fine all day while hiking but once we arrived at our place for the night it was colder than expected. Beautiful views along entire route. We had perfectly clear days and relatively few people along the trail due to the early departure. Also the trail was not too dusty as it was still moist from the winter.
This did mean that some businesses were not open yet for the season so we missed out on certain bakeries and bars we thought we would be able to visit. Turned out to be fine but was unexpected. On way out more things were open, by the fifteenth of march most everything was open.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
It is cold in the tea houses, be prepared for that.

Bucket list trip!

Such an amazing experience, a trip of a lifetime for sure. The views are absolutely breathtaking, can't take your eyes off the impressive mountains. Coming from the USA, being exposed to Nepali culture was educational, interesting and enriching. The trip is physically demanding, but it is totally doable. I liked the physical challenge, a fun fitness test. Meeting and chatting with other travelers along the way was fun - there are people from all over the world coming to see the tallest mountain. OneSeed keeps the group size to ten or less, which is really nice. We saw some groups that were huge and that did not look appealing to us. With a smaller group, you really get time to know everyone, including the guides and guides in training. If you like hiking and new experiences, this trip is not to be missed.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Loss of appetite and having a hard time sleeping at high altitudes (> 16,000 for our group) is real, be ready for it!

Bucket List Trip with an Awesome, Awesome Company

This was my second trip with OneSeed and was seriously one of the best experiences of my life. The OneSeed team in Nepal is amazing, and the Denver team did a great job getting us prepared for the trek. The trek is long and difficult at times, and even though I never had any major issues with the elevation I definitely felt it as we got closer to Base Camp.The view of Everest from Kala Patthar is also awesome. Our guide, Goma, and assistant guide, Gelu, took great care of the entire group of 7 of us and we all made it to Base Camp.

Knowing that 10% of the trip went back to entrepreneurs in Nepal was a great feeling, and knowing that we were supporting local businesses and locals everywhere we traveled was another great factor. Cannot wait to go back to Nepal and when I do it will be with OneSeed.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Take training for the trek seriously - you are trekking for a long time at elevation - and bring lots of warm clothes! Nights get cold and even though the Tea House common areas are heated the bedrooms are not. I was grateful to have layers to sleep in, even with a 0 degree sleeping bag (went in early March which is colder that other times of the season).

What an amazing experience, the Oneseed staff was so great. All of the accommodations where we’ll thought out and the views where breathtaking! Highly recommend the trip. The people of Nepal are some of the happiest you will ever meet in your life. They are a pure joy when your hiking on the trail. It does get cold at night so bring warm clothes. The Himalayas are absolutely incredible, the sheer magnitude of the mountains can not really be explained. Definitely take a lot of photos. The altitude is challenging, only for the push to base camp and Kalapattar. The hike up Kalapattar to watch the sunset or sunrise over Everest is worth every step up. The top can be really windy though so come prepared if you plan on hanging out up there for more than a few minutes.
